Blue Pencil no. 22 addendum
Several years ago I posted a bibliography of books by and about Hermann Zapf (Blue Pencil no. 22). At the time Jerry Kelly indicated I had missed several (see Blue Pencil no. 23), but never provided me with their titles or other information. Since then Akira Kobayashi has obligingly sent me one of the missing items. Here are the details:
Zapf Exhibition: The Calligraphy of Hermann & Gudrun Zapf
Akira Kobayashi, Juzo Takaoka and Masao Takaoka
Tokyo: Japan Letter Arts Forum, 2011
Copies are currently available from RIT Press. At the time of my back-and-forth with Jerry Kelly I came across another Zapf publication via WorldCat. Here is the information again:
Meister der Schrift, Hermann Zapf: Kalligraph, Schriftdesigner, Typograph, Buchgestalter
Anne Isphording, ed.
Nurembeg: Stadtbibliothek Nürnberg
This catalogue of an exhibition at the Stadtbibliothek Nürnberg (25 September 2002 to 10 January 2003) appears to be still available. See the list of exhibition catalogues on the library’s website, though I do not see a mechanism for buying it.
One more item should be added to the Zapf bibliography and that is The Hermann Zapf Sketchbook Project from the Kelly-Winterton Press that will be published in a month or so. Although this book is not available yet, I would urge anyone interested in Hermann Zapf, calligraphy or letterforms in general to buy a copy.
